Between the golden age of Greece and the grandeur that was Rome, there was the rise of Macedonia. In this brief breath of history, the burgeoning kingdom is fighting its way out of chaos, and creating the platform for a conquest that will forever change the world. But, behind every great king there are great minds.Deakon Korydon, officer of the sacred Companion Cavalry, trainer of the greatest military force in history, and personal friend to Phillip II, has grown weary of the diet of constant conquest and hungers for more in life. Kera Berenyse, ex-princess and political prisoner, was groomed for queendom but lives as a slave in the bathhouse for the entertainment of Phillips Companion Officers. Deake yearns for love, but Kera, of necessity, must shun it.The gods have fated them to be together, but do they possess the courage required to win the ultimate battle of loving versus living, to save not only themselves, but the future glory of Macedonia? Lushly described, The Companion is packed with raw, honest emotion and a scorching sensuality that will leave you breathless.
